In April Atlassian (news, site) launched the Atlassion Stimulus Package, a 5 day offer to purchase a 5-user license for Confluence or JIRA for only US$ 5. All proceeds of the sale of those licenses went to the Room to Read Charity.
In the end, the sales totaled US$ 110,000, and Atlassian concentrated their donation on Cambodia, building 16 libraries, providing a year of education to 68 girls and publishing one Khmer Language Storybook.
Today, they come out with a new offer, again aimed at the small business market, with all proceeds going to the Room to Read charity. But this time there is no end date for the offer.
For US$ 10 you can get:
- JIRA: Issue tracking and project management -- 10-users
- Confluence: Enterprise Wiki -- 10-users
- GreenHopper: Agile Project Management for JIRA -- 10-users
- Bamboo: Continuous Integration Server -- 10 plans, unlimited local agents, 0 remote agents
- FishEye: Source Code Repository -- 10 committers, 5 repositories
- Crowd: Single-sign on and Identity Management -- 50-users
All software is fully functional and supported by Atlassian. In addition, they are renewable at the same price yearly.
According to Laura Kahlil of Atlassion, "Atlassian is making a commitment to help small teams keep their costs down and to provide continued educational opportunities for children who need it the most."
Atlassian joins a number of other content management industry vendors doing something to make the world a better place. Others include: Kentico (Kentico Goes Green, Plants a Tree for Every Bug in v4.1) and KnowledgeTree (KnowledgeTree's Green Initiative, Plants a Tree for A New Sale).
